Probably. I had correspondence with Neville Walsh abiut wahat the Victorians were calling Astrotricha sp. Wallagaraugh River. He was not aware that the same species was gazetted as Astrotricha sp. Wallagaraugh in NSW. He said the Victorians would bring the terminology into synch. They have gone back to calling it Astrotricha sp. 5, called that in Flora of Victoria. At least they have a key for it, which Plantnet does not. The key character in Vicflora is wrinkling on the upper side of the leaf. Unfortunstely your photos do not really show thentop side of the leaf.

I based my ID on the fact that it looked very similar to the one in Bournda NP and I was beside the Wallagaraugh River.

I think the wrinkled leaf upperside may only show up in dried material anyway, so fresh plants won't key out to this. I had that experience recently with a bit I collected on the horse track off Widgeram Road - I knew it could only be that species, but it wouldn't key to it in the Vic Flora. Would be interesting to know how widespread it is on the Wallagaraugh. I vaguely recall seeing it in that same spot myself a few years ago, but haven't run across it anywhere else down there.
